http://www.burberryusaonline.com/pro...entPage=family That's the link to the coat. I'm 6'1" and pretty skinny. I got them in a size 40, when my true size is close to a 38ish. The salesman said that the 40 fit perfectly in the shoulders, however. They did fit well. I want a slimmer fit, so I'm planning on narrowing the waist, which seems to be pretty common amongst coats. The thing is, I'd also like to narrow the arms a bit, as they are a little too loose to my liking. I work out, however, so I don't want to make them TIGHT. I especially want to narrow down the forearm/wrist area. My friend, however, who seems pretty experienced in the tailoring area said that altering the arms is very expensive. He told me to expect to spend at least $140 for the arms only. Is this true? Any advice? I've never been to a tailor before.. what do I need to tell him? Thanks so much in advance!

If you can take it to a Burberry store, they'll actually modernize it for you.
